    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a fun class and Shimazu-sensei is a good teacher of the subject.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a thorough knowledge of verbal and written Japanese though it's only the beginning class. Shimazu-sensei has a huge personality and is very helpful for students who seek it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, practice A LOT, like most language classes this is not one where you can do the bare minimum and make it through. You definitely need to put in effort in order to truly learn and be able to do well. Repetition is certainly a key to learning a language, so repeat whatever the professor says, make sure to keep up with any practice or homework assigned and you'll do fine.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you are wanting to learn Japanese, I recommend this course. During the course, you will sometimes be confused of the professor's teaching style, HOWEVER, there is a method to his madness. He provides random tangents along side his lessons, that way you remember the course materials.

    Course highlights:

    Learned a lot of japanese and some japanese cultural facts.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the workbook, or else you won't be learning anything.
